used clothes and antique shops

2014.07.05 Saturday | by cathy @whooper#138
Whenever I visit a city, I like finding the local used items shops and exploring treasures among them.

There're various kind of second hand item shops in Otaru. Usually they're used clothes and mostly claimed imported from the US.

This is the one most near Morinoki. The items're entrusted by clients to the shop and displayed inside. The price of those items're set by the owners themselves. Occasionally you may find some incredibly cheap quality items!

Within the same street, there's another used clothes shop mainly selling imported used things from the US, Thailand and so on. I also found many "Made in Hong Kong" items and this proves that those clothes're at least 30years old!

The next one is nearby Otaru Canal. Almost all old clothing' re imported from the US. Over half of the shop is selling homme items.

This is the only one vintage shop I visited not selling clothes. Located further around north canal, the shop is big and have almost everything you can imagine, from jackets to paintings, from toys to books and CDs. A very interesting one! Want to visit again!

漫長車程

2014.07.04 Friday | by cathy @whooper#138
好,為左係呢度留下香港腳毛,決定轉用廣東話。

今日去咗神威岬同島武意海岸。
神威岬離小樽兩個多小時車程,然後島武意海岸離小樽一個多小時。
雖然已經看過天氣預報話今天會好天啲所以先揀今日去,但都係同大部份日子一樣陰霾。



先去咗神威岬,天氣唔好,景色打左6折。但買了很可愛的北海道郵票。





然後等巴士去島武意海岸。



日本の渚百選就是被選出來日本最美麗的一百個海岸線。



根本是一潭灰水(・_・; 跟想像很大出入欸。

失望而回呢。仲要撘好耐車(´・_・`)...

cloudy view in tenguyama

2014.07.03 Thursday | by cathy @whooper#138
Yesterday i went to tenguyama to see the breathtaking full view of Otaru.

Tengu's an imagined animal with a long nose and a red face. It looks so angry but it is deemed that it can bring luck to whoever touches its nose.

Tenguyama's also famous for its panorama view of Otaru. Its night view's one of the three most beautiful nightscape among Hokkaido.

So I sat there and waited for the sunset.

Unfortunately one and half hour later... 😨


image.jpeg

The whole Otaru city was covered by thick clouds. 残念ね。

Cant see the breathtaking nightscape finally but this sea of clouds's also gorgeous.




What also makes Tenguyama special is that there's a chipmunk park!!!

Isn't it cute? <3
